  1. Albert Dupontel, Au revoir la-haut, France, 2017.   Caustic actor-director Dupontel had previously chosen the Beglian for his  Enfermés dehors, Le villain and 9 mois ferme.   “But two months before shooting started, he was epuisé… tired out.  I tried the “bankable” actors but…. Most were already booked up.”  So he had to play the lead and direct.  He did so, brilliantly. Hence: Best Director César in 2018.   Plus another for adapted script. And the absolutely glorious film won three more:  photography, decor and costumes. From 13 nominations.
